Damon Dotson will be coming to Newton for the first time in the new year this Saturday at the First Avenue Speakeasy at 8 p.m. He will be featuring new original and cover songs to the Speakeasy set list. “We’re about done with another album, which unless you follow me on the Internet or on the road, you will see most of the set list will be new original and cover songs,” Damon said. Damon emerged on the music scene in 2003. His popularity has taken him far in the last 11 years. The beginning of his career was very humble. He grew up in Okoboji and would play backyard parties,

King, Matt Nathanson, The Gin Blossoms, The Beach Boys, Kenny Loggins, Tristan Prettyman and Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers. “It’s been amazing having the opportunity to open up for these headlining acts,” he said. Damon remembers listening to the country music legend Willie Nelson when he was in second grade. “It was fun opening up for Willie Nelson, I didn’t get a chance to meet him or get anything signed, but to say I opened up for him is

were seized. Quintrail Coley, 33, was arrested as a result and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and failure to affix a drug tax stamp, both of which are Class D felonies, and possession of drug paraphernalia, a simple misdemeanor. Coley was transported to the Jasper County Jail to await his initial appearance on the charges. Online court records indicate he has nearly a dozen previous misdemeanor traffic convictions and a August 2009 conviction for possession of a controlled substance, which resulted in a fine and a two-day jail sentence.

Veterans groups collect more than 600 DVDs for VA hospitals By Daily News Staff Thursday afternoon, representatives of the VFW Ladies’ Auxiliary, VFW, American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary and Jasper County Viet Nam Veterans were on hand at Family Video in Newton to officially hand over more than 630 DVDs to VA hospitals that serve Iowans. The videos were donated to Family Video by local patrons. Previously, Family Video has shipped the DVDs to members of the military serving overseas. But, when corporate officials made the decision to end the practice, the local store opted to find a new way to donate gently-used DVDs to those who have served their country.

The bond between father and son is one of the strongest relationships between two men. It teaches loyalty, responsibility and respect for those around you. Newton resident David Suter remembers his relationship with his father, U.S. Navy veteran and former Petty Officer 3rd Class Steven Suter. “I will always remember his love for me and him wanting the best for me,” David said.

a great honor,” he said. Damon and his band were opening for The Beach Boys and got a surprise when, during one of the songs, the drummer from The Beach Boys got up and started to play along. “We didn’t even rehearse it. He just came up and found the tune and created an amazing vibe,” Damon said. Opening for Matt Nathanson is one experience Damon holds special, as Nathanson came over to him and thanked him for opening. “Matt Nathanson is the nicest dude you will ever meet,” Damon said. “He made the initiative to introduce himself to me, which I thought was cool.”
As the Newton Community Board of Education prepares for its first meeting of 2014, a pressing issue from 2013 is closer to being resolved. The board will hold the second reading of board policy 410.1-410.3, which focuses on early retirement options for qualified district employees. There are two sets of standards for qualified employees. Teachers and nurses may receive 25 percent of their base salary and pay received for a school-related extracurricular activity is not included. Administrators and classified personnel would receive 25 percent of the salary they are receiving at the time of retirement. The district will also offer to buy back sick days from early retirees at a rate of $50 per day. The maximum amount of days a person could accumulate is 180. Sick days top out at 180 because that is the amount of time equal to one instructional year. Superintendent Bob Callaghan explained to the board, at the Dec. 16 meeting, why he felt buying back days was necessary. “If they are going early, the thought process is that we are going to reward them for that first year, by basically paying their retirement insurance for one year and (they) still have the same amount of funds left over, if they kept all 180, that we would have given them in the past,” Callaghan said. Currently, there are 17 employees who qualify for early-retirement and Callaghan said 16 of them have a minimum of 164 sick days. “So, it’s kind of like a goodwill gesture,” he said.
Steven Suter served two tours during Vietnam on the USS Fox. Steven worked as a machinist mate, and he worked in the bowels of the ship. Steven was
honorably discharged from the Navy in 1979. He went back to home to San Diego and married his wife Jane. In 1982, Jane and Steven had David Suter. “During Veterans Day and Memorial Day, I always watch old war movies and think of my father,” David said. “I will always remember his stories of the brotherhood and companionship on the boat.” In 1995, the Suter SUTER See Page 5A

Cashless system scrapped for Iowa State Fair DES MOINES (AP) — Officials behind the iconic Iowa State Fair on Thursday announced they were scrapping plans to eliminate cash sales at food vendors and other attractions, following public backlash. The Iowa State Fair Board canceled plans for the cashless payment system following a meeting, The Des Moines Register reported. The board later released a statement with its decision. “The Iowa State Fair Board has decided today that they will not implement a mandatory cashless payment system at the 2014 Fair,” said the statement. “Instead, they will continue to investigate future implementation of a more progressive system that will eliminate Fairgoers’ concerns of the inconvenience of paper tickets and long lines, improve the concessionaires’ reporting system and accommodate the Fair’s infrastructure.” Fair officials had announced Tuesday that they would sell 50-cent tickets online and at multiple locations at the fairgrounds for food and other rides.
Pizza shop delivers medicines LIGONIER, Pa. (AP) — A western Pennsylvania pizza shop has been delivering prescription medicines and other supplies to ill and elderly residents so they don’t have to go outside in the bitter cold. Tom Wynkoop, owner of Fox’s Pizza Den in Ligonier, tells WPXI-TV that he tweeted his offer because his community about 45 miles east of
Pittsburgh has a lot of elderly residents. Wynkoop told those in need to call his cellphone to arrange deliveries of prescription medicines and other products — no strings attached. That’s right: Folks don’t have to order food from Wynkoop’s shop to get help. Wynkoop says his shop has made four deliveries. He says, “You have to be there for your residents.”
They said the new system, which was voted on during a November meeting, would be more secure and speed up food purchases. In response, some longtime fairgoers said the hassle of new lines and other confusion over how many tickets to get would keep them at home. Gov. Terry Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds issued a statement that said they were pleased with the board’s decision. Reynolds herself serves on the board, and participated in Thursday’s meeting via conference call. She was not present for the November vote that unanimously approved the cashless system. “I’m pleased the Iowa State Fair Board has listened to fairgoers’ concerns and decided to maintain its cash payment system,” Branstad said. “When making a decision affecting so many individuals, it’s important to find a consensus. This decision will ensure convenience and efficiency for State Fair visitors.” This year’s Iowa State Fair is scheduled for Aug. 7-17.

Police say they’ve solved ’84 triple homicide in Drakesville IOWA CITY (AP) — Investigators will announce Friday the details of how they have solved the 30-year-old bludgeoning deaths of a mother, her son and her son’s fiancee in southeastern Iowa, authorities said Thursday. Davis County Sheriff Dave Davis said the resolution will be announced in the 1984 unsolved homicides of 20-year-old Justin Hook, Jr.; his mother, 41-year-old Sarah Link; and Hook’s fiancee, 19-yearold Tina Lade. “Hopefully this will give a little peace of mind to some of the family members,” Davis told The Associated Press. Authorities said the details would be provided Friday in Ottumwa during a press conference featuring Davis’ office, the Wapello County sheriff’s office and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation. They said no one was in custody Thursday in connection with the deaths; it is possible that a deceased suspect has been identified through DNA evidence. Firefighters found Hook’s body outside his burned-out mobile home in rural Drakesville in April 1984. Investigators searched for Link to tell her about her son’s death but
could not locate her. A farmer found her body the following week in a wooded area near Eldon. Two days later, police dogs discovered Lade’s body in a ravine a half-mile away from Link’s following a large search. All three had been killed by trauma to the head. Investigators believe all three were killed around the same time. They chased hundreds of leads over the years but no one was arrested. The triple homicide had been one of about 150 cases that have been examined by a DCI cold case unit that was formed in 2009. In those cases, investigators have been resubmitting evidence from crime scenes for fresh laboratory testing in the hopes of uncovering new DNA evidence. The work has led to arrests in some cases after newly developed DNA profiles are run through a national database containing DNA samples of known offenders. Fred Moyes, Jr., of Coralville said investigators have scheduled a meeting Friday with family members to discuss the developments. His wife, Cynthia Moyes, is the daughter of Link and sister of Hook. “We won’t know the details until tomorrow,” he said. “It will be some relief, though.”

Make sure your voice is heard by our elected officials Monday morning, the Iowa General Assembly will convene for its 2014 session. This is your cue as a citizen to become engaged with our elected officials, to let them know what we expect of them. In general, this session, which will serve as a prelude to the 2014 General Election, is expected to be “uneventful.” But, of the few issues that are expected to be discussed by the Iowa House and Senate, almost all of them will have an impact on the residents of Newton and Jasper County. One of the benefits of being an Iowan is the grassroots nature of our state’s form of governance. If you want to go to the Iowa Statehouse and talk to your legislator, all you really have to do is go there and have him or her paged. Of course, it’s usually better to have an appointment scheduled ahead of time. That’s where engagement becomes so important. Whether you voted to elect Rep. Dan Kelley and Sen. Dennis Black, or Rep. Greg Heartsill and Sen. Amy Sinclair (who represent the southeast corner of Jasper County), or not, their job is to represent your interests. To help them do their job, you must share your opinions and thoughts with them. Hearing from even a handful of concerned citizens may cause a legislator to pay attention to a particular issue and encourage him or her to rethink how he or she intends to vote. There are a number of different ways to lobby your legislators. You can call, write, email or schedule a visit at the Statehouse. But remember: in general, the more personal your lobbying contact is, the more effective it will be. You don’t have to be an expert on a particular issue to make your voice be heard. You just need to speak up and speak out often. ••• The preceding constitutes the opinion of the Daily News Editorial Board. Readers may respond with letters to the editor sent to P.O.

Cover crops are a conservation bargain By Dr. Jacqueline Comito Program Manager, Iowa Learning Farms Editor’s note: This is the third in a series of op-ed articles to be published on a weekly basis in the Newton Daily News.
Cover crops have come to the forefront of the state’s efforts to reduce nutrient loads in Iowa waterways. Cover crops are included in the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy as an important practice that farmers can use to reduce nonpoint source pollution. As part of the NRS implementation, Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey announced that cost share funds are available for cover crops and all the funds were spoken for quickly. Historically, producers have been reluctant to plant cover crops because of the time and money involved. Considering the current support for cover crops and the many benefits they provide, the time has never been better to start planting cover crops. Producers typically grow cover crops to provide living cover on farm fields during times when cash crops are not grown, usually during late fall and early spring. While farmers usually do not harvest cover crops for profit, they provide many economic and environmental benefits. First, cover crops recycle nutrients and help prevent them from entering Iowa waterways. They help water infiltrate soil, preventing nutrient-heavy runoff from entering waterways. This increased soil infiltration also provides
some flood mitigation. Additionally, cover crops absorb excess nitrogen, reducing nitrogen leaching into the groundwater or drainage systems. In one Iowa field study, a cereal rye cover crop reduced nitrate concentration in drainage water by 48 percent, and oats reduced nitrate concentration by 25 percent. Although results will vary depending how much the cover grows, this means that widespread use of cover crops can significantly improve Iowa water quality and recycle valuable nutrients back to our soil. Second, cover crops help to retain topsoil. Topsoil is Iowa’s most precious resource and the base of our agricultural economy. Retaining topsoil is essential to the state’s long-term economic health. Unfortunately, when farmland is left without any living cover from harvest to planting or during any time of the year topsoil is lost through erosion. An Iowa study found that using rye cover crop following no-tillage soybeans reduced sheet erosion by 54 percent and rill erosion by 90 percent compared to no-tillage fields without cover crops. An oat cover crop produced about one-half the benefit of a rye cover crop. In addition to providing soil cover, the cover crops also helped to anchor residues and prevented them from moving with flowing water. This is especially important now because Iowa has been experiencing frequent high intensity rainfall events. These findings show that cover crops
are an important tool in retaining Iowa’s most important natural resource. Not only do cover crops help retain soil, but they also improve soil health. Cover crops recycle nutrients that would otherwise end up in Iowa waters and redeposit those nutrients into the soil where they will eventually be available for future crops. Legume cover crops can also fix atmospheric nitrogen and deposit it into the soil. Cover crops can also improve soil health by increasing soil organic matter and increasing earthworm populations. They can help to control weeds and increase plant diversity by improving habitat for beneficial microbes, insects, and wildlife. While cover crops require additional financial input, labor, and crop management, they are an important long-term investment for securing the future success of Iowa farms. Importantly, recent farmer surveys have reported that effectively managed cover crops do not significantly affect cash crop yields. In fact, the Iowa Farmer Today recently reported that cover crops increase cash crop yields during periods of weather volatility. In drought-stricken areas, farmers reported that corn yields were 11 percent higher and soybean yields were 14 percent higher than yields for corn and soybeans not planted after cover crops. Not only will cover crops help achieve the Iowa NRS goals, but producers will also retain healthy, fertile topsoil for generations to come.
Board of Education should allow math comparison By Sue Atkinson, Ph.D. College Educator Iowa’s teacher training programs continue to be graded as failures, according to the annual surveys of the National Council of Teacher Quality. The program that comes the closest to meeting standards for math is ISU (high school level only), but then they are seriously docked for utterly failing to provide the necessary foundation at the lower grade levels that is necessary to support the work at higher levels. What students do with memorizing activities (the replacement for foundational concepts) is

assign their own meaning to help them get through it. Sometimes (rarely) they are spot-on with the underlying concepts; sometimes they are close enough to muddle by; and sometimes (usually) they are hopelessly lost. As evidenced by the number of job opportunities going unfilled because applicants lack the problem-solving and critical thinking skills developed by foundational concept-based math, few students are able to reason their way through the muddle of a loser math curriculum. Iowa Core Mathematics, broken down into chunks on the Iowa
Department of Education website, does little to help move educators out of the quicksand of their own lack of foundational concepts. Publishers, anxious to sell a math program to schools, will also sell some one-time training in the program — for a price. As with students lost in a morass of something they do not understand, some educators will be able to find their way through this; some educators might get close to an understanding; and many will be lost. Just as with the rest of the job market, the education sector is also a victim of its own lack of foundational training of the past

50 years. The National Council for Teachers of Mathematics (cited several places in the math curriculum report) not only offers a concept-based curriculum for K-12, it also offers an ongoing membership for math teachers to be in regular contact with them through their website. They have weekly activities for all grade levels to help improve the understanding of concepts and their applications across a variety of disciplines — as has been the case with mathematics for thousands of years, developing cognitive skills. Only when this country made a con-
scious decision to drop this connection across disciplines, and then to drop the underlying foundational concepts did it fall so far behind the rest of the world. If Iowa’s teacher training programs are not going to rise to the level required for a conceptbased education, then another source must be found so educators can learn and then teach the foundational concepts they did not have in their own education. Iowa educators continue to strongly believe the fault lies with the students (indicating how badly they are trained, as well as their lack of critical-thinking and prob-
lem-solving skills), they refuse to be evaluated on students’ proficiencies. This refusal means Iowa will not be granted an extension of continuing to use the 41st national percentile as the student proficiency standard (when the 65th national percentile is grade level) by the U.S. Dept. of Education. The Iowa Board of Education should take action at its January meeting to allow Iowa schools the choice of using either the national curriculum or the Iowa curriculum and let a side-by-side evidencebased evaluation decide which one can achieve results.

10 things to look for in 2014 at the movies NEW YORK (AP) — Hollywood may be hoping for a little less drama in 2014. 2013 was a tale of two cinemas. Blockbusters like “The Lone Ranger” and “After Earth” flopped spectacularly while many in the industry (including Steven Spielberg) bemoaned the increasingly commercial trajectory of the studios. And yet by the end of the year, Hollywood had set a record with nearly $11 billion in revenue, while critics hailed the year’s crop — from “Gravity” to “12 Years a Slave” to “Inside Llewyn Davis” — as one of the best in years. The movie business re-
mains, as ever, an incomprehensible Jekyll and Hyde act of up and down, hit and bomb. How will 2014 unfold? The plot, at least, will be unchanged. However much some would like to see a new rhythm to Hollywood’s seasonal cycle, the year will move to the familiar pattern of sketchy spring releases, summer superhero blockbusters and fall awards-contenders. Here are 10 things to look for at the movies in 2014: STELLAR SCI-FI Anticipation runs especially high for “Interstellar” (Nov. 7), Christopher Nolan’s deep
space travel adventure starring Matthew McConaughey. Nolan, the director of “Inception” and “The Dark Knight,” is one of few directors whose name alone makes fanboys salivate. His imprimatur promises a cinematic experience (he likes to shoot with IMAX cameras) that few today can match. Nolan’s name also looms large in “Transcendence” (April 18), which he produced. The artificial intelligence tale, starring Johnny Depp and Rebecca Hall, is the directorial debut of Nolan’s longtime cinematographer Wally Pfister. Other science-fiction entries in 2014
include a reboot of “Robocop” (Feb. 12), a futuristic, timetraveling war film with Tom Cruise; “Edge of Tomorrow” ( June 6), the Wachowskis’ latest fantasy oddity, “Jupiter Ascending” ( July 18); and Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut “How to Catch a Monster” (no date yet), a less effect-heavy domestic drama that tunnels into an underwater realm. HOLD-OVERS FROM 2013 This year will benefit from last year’s unusually good leftovers. George Clooney’s World War II art rescue tale
“The Monuments Men” will open Feb. 7 after being delayed from December. James Grey’s Ellis Island drama “The Immigrant” (undated), starring Joaquin Phoenix and Marion Cottilard, could emerge as an Oscar dark horse after earning acclaim on the festival circuit. Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher,” featuring a dark turn from Steve Carell, will bow sometime in 2014. “Grace of Monaco,” with Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly, opens March 14.

Dubuque museum looks toward recovery from fire DUBUQUE (AP) — Officials at a Dubuque museum say it could cost more than $1 million and months of work to recover from a December fire that left extensive smoke and water damage.

DENNIS THE MENACE
THE BORN LOSER
Friday, January 10, 2014
Portrait of man’s late wife clouds couple’s life together DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend of two years, “Clint,” recently brought a large framed picture of his deceased wife into our home. He placed it on his dresser in front of framed photos of us together. His wife died three years ago. We are living together in a condo Clint bought for me. He made it clear from the beginning that he didn’t want to move me into “her house.” Clint also still wears his wedding ring. He carries guilt and doesn’t seem to have made closure. I told him I don’t feel comfortable with her picture “looking at us.” He doesn’t think there should be a problem. Should I move on? — IN THE SHADOWS DEAR IN THE SHADOWS: That Clint still wears his wedding ring tells me he may not have accepted his wife’s death. How sad for him. Ask him to move his wife’s picture to a room other than the bedroom because, while he doesn’t think it’s creating a problem, it is creating one for YOU. If he can’t bring himself to do that — and join a grief support group — then you should consider moving on. DEAR ABBY: Enough with the problems! It’s time you printed a positive letter. I’m an active, friendly senior who lives alone, but I’m not lonely. I have many friends of all ages and a devoted family. Why? Because as I traveled through many states during my life, I reached out to people along the way. The saying, “If you want a friend, be a friend,” is true. If we want friends, we can’t sit back and wait for people to come to us. Smile, speak up, pay a sincere compliment — just communicate! If you do, the majority of people will respond positively. I socialize with people my age in church circles, card clubs and diningout groups who can’t understand why I’m always so busy. They don’t reach out except to people they already know. As people get older, that group is constantly shrinking. Join a religious group, commu-
nity clubs and organizations. Volunteer to read at schools and libraries. Visit a senior group or center. Many people of all ages fear they won’t be accepted. But if they show up with a friendly attitude, they will be. You have to contribute — whether it’s with a smile, an opening remark or some other welcoming gesture. I served in the military, taught Sunday school, led Girl Scouts, garden clubs, church and neighborhood groups while following my husband through eight states and raising three children. My husband was often away in his business, but we had a strong, supportive marriage. He joined me in many activities when he could be home. I think many people have forgotten we must give in order to get. When we reach out to others, most of the time those people reach back. — NOT LONELY IN WOODSTOCK, ILL. DEAR NOT LONELY: It’s easy to see why you have a wide circle of friends. Your positive energy leaps off the page. There are two types of people in the world: those who come into a room and their attitude says, “Here I am!” and those who come into a room and their attitude says, “There you are!” You are one of the latter. If people want a warm welcome, they should keep in mind that the happier they are to see others, the happier others will be to see them.

Movies Continued from Page 5A will doubtless contain its own shifts, too. The seventh “Fast & Furious” film, planned for July, was moved to 2015 following the death of star Paul Walker in November. MARVEL’s EXPANDING UNIVERSE Marvel’s world domination continues with “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” (April 4), “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” (May 2), “X-Men: Days of Future Past” (May 23) and “Guardians of the Galaxy” (Aug. 1). The last, the lone non-sequel, represents Marvel’s reach for another ensemble team-up film, and, with a cast including Chris Pratt and Bradley Cooper, perhaps something a little different than its usual output. MUSICALS SING AGAIN Though 2013 contained no major live-action musical, several are coming this year. Clint Eastwood, of all people, directs the screen adaptation of the hit production about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons in “Jersey Boys” ( June 20). “Annie” (Dec. 19), produced by Will Smith and Jay Z, will get a contemporary update with “Beasts

Nominate teachers for NCEF Excellence in Education Awards By Ty Rushing Daily News Staff Writer
The Newton Community Educational Foundation has been honoring teachers for their hard work for awhile now, but this year it has added some new twists to its Excellence in Education Award. For the first time ever, previous recipients of the award will be eligible to win again. Another new item, is that teachers no longer provide the nominations for the award. Instead, NCFE is asking parents, students, alumni and community members to nominate teachers for this prestigious honor. In order to nominate someone, a paragraph explaining why said recipient is worthy of the award. NCFE realizes the difficulty in selecting only one teacher to nominate, so it established criteria to help potential nominators in the decision making process. “The candidate should be an exceptionally dedicated, knowledgeable and a skilled faculty member, prekindergarten through grade 12, who is planning to remain active as a professional educator,” the application states. “The candidate should inspire students to learn,” the application continues. “The candidate should have

the respect, admiration and support of students, parents and colleagues. The candidate should be poised, articulate and enthusiastic.” Another key criteria for selection, is how active and useful is the teacher in the community. Is this teacher the type of person to stay after school at Berg Middle School and help with the Cardinal Time and Cardinal Time Plus study sessions?

Daily News Turning the Page
The passing of a legend “Oh Doctor!” Those words might not mean much around this part of the country, but for me, they bring back childhood memories of triumph and jubilation. This past week former New By Dustin Turner York YanDaily News kees second Sports Writer baseman, San Diego Padres manager and most importantly radio broadcaster Jerry Coleman passed away at the age of 89. Coleman may have played for the Yankees for more than eight years, but he was most beloved as the voice of the Padres. He doesn’t have the national notoriety of a Vin Scully or a Jack Buck, but Coleman became a staple of San Diego sports from the moment he graced the microphone with his soothing vocal cords in 1958. He spent some years bouncing around. He started out with the Yankees, moved on to CBS, and he moved out west in 1970 to take over as the radioman for the California Angels before finally settling into his role as the Padres main broadcast man in 1972. Coleman was best known for some silky catch phrases such as “You can hang a star on that one, baby,” “The natives are getting restless” and my personal favorite, “Oh Doctor!” I know most people here think of San Diego as a big city. It is, but it’s not like most other big cities. There is a real community feeling, a shared value system. It feels like a small town, and everywhere you go, you feel like you’re with friends. Where Coleman’s and my paths coincide is back in the fall of 1998. The Padres were on their way to just their second World Series appearance, and the only one so far in my lifetime. Although the Friars didn’t really show up in the Series, the city was and is still incredibly proud of that ’98 team. Anyway, I was left after school for daycare, as was typically the case because my parents were working. The Padres were playing the Braves in the NLCS. It was Game 6 in Atlanta, top of the sixth. Our pitcher at the time, Sterling Hitchcock, was twirling a gem and led off the inning. He hit a ball into left field that should have been an out. I remember the call like it was five minutes ago. “Bautista settles under it, easy fly ball. Oh and he dropped it, and the Friars are in business.” Hall of Fame manager Bobby Cox then went to bring in the infamous John Rocker for Tom Glavine. Rocker gave up singles to Quilvio Veras and Tony Gwynn. We scored five runs that inning. Hitchcock held strong, and in the ninth, future Hall of Famer Trevor Hoffman closed it out. Coleman had it perfectly from the time he came in, and when Trevor shut the door, yet again Coleman was all over it. “Were we back in San Diego, he would be hearing the bells right now, but instead, there is just a silent Turner Field crowd. Trevor has never looked more focused.” … “Trevor with the kick and the pitch to Tucker. It is a lazy one into left field, Vaughn has it and the Padres are going to the World Series!” I, along with thousands — if not millions — of others listening shared that moment, and we will all have Coleman’s voice in our heads to sync it with. Jerry Coleman was one of the best ever. His career delighted those who listened, and it will never be duplicated. There was only one Jerry Coleman. You can hang a star on it.
Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News Newton’s Bryce Tish records the pin of Oskaloosa’s Willis Knox in 23 seconds in the 132-pound match in Thursday’s home dual meet for the NHS Cardinals. Oskaloosa won the Little Hawkey Conference dual, 37-33.
Cardinal wrestlers drop LHC dual to Indians By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor NEWTON — Bryce Tish put an exciting and positive end to a bit of a disappointing night on their home mat for Newton’s Cardinals. The Cardinals hosted Oskaloosa’s Indians in Little Hawkeye Conference action. Tish, a sophomore coming back from an injury, had the final match of the night. He caught Oskaloosa’s Willis Knox in a throw right to his back. Tish won the 132-pound match in 23 seconds with a pin. The Indians left the NHS gymnasium Thursday night with a 37-33 win over the Cardinals. It was the first loss in conference duals for Newton. The Cardinals are 2-1 in LHC duals and 7-4 overall. “We have to work a lit-
tle bit harder. Some of our guys expect to go out and get a win instead of going out and earn a win,” said Andy Swedenhjelm, Newton head coach. “We have to talk about that more as a team.” Newton began the varsity dual well. Juniors Dakota Dawson and Brett Wolf pinned their opponents at 138 pounds and 145 pounds, putting the Cardinals up 12-0. Oskaloosa’s Jason Beebe defeated Peyton Patterson 12-3 in the 152-pound match. The Indians’ Tyler Zickefoose pinned Earl Kimmel with three seconds left in the first period at 160. Newton’s J.T. Thongvanh faced Oskaloosa’s Cody Jones, who placed at state a year ago, in the 170-pound match. Thongvanh scored the opening takedown but
trailed 3-2 after the first period. Jones posted a 14-4 decision over Thongvanh to tie the team score at 12-all. “We had some people step up and battle really well in matches. J.T. wrestled well against a returning state place winner,” Swedenhjelm said. “Bryce is doing well and gave us a good ending to the meet. He is almost full strength now. Overall, we were close against a good team. Oskaloosa has some good individual wrestlers.” At 182, Newton’s Cole Doerring was pinned by Mason Wisse in 1 minute, 10 seconds. That win put the Indians in front for good, 18-12. Kyle Salazar pinned Newton’s Jordan Henning in the second period of the 195-pound bout. Ray Schroder, who moved up to 220 for the dual, scored a 13-6 deci-
sion over Oskaloosa’s Callan Tomlin. Newton’s Jacob Williams, who is battling a shoulder injury, went through a scoreless first period with Zane McKay. “It was a scramble (in the second period) and I got the reversal,” Williams said about his win by pin over McKay in the 285-pound match. Williams, a senior, worked his way off the bottom and turned McKay with 24 seconds left in the period. “I don’t like giving up so I’ve been working through the injury. I want it to go better (on the mat) for me,” Williams added. Newton trailed Oskaloosa 25-21 as the dual moved into the lower weights. Koby Hull and Oskaloosa’s Drew Sams were tied CARDINALS See Page 2B
Mustangs take out Raiders in Heart of Iowa action By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer BAXTER — Prairie City-Monroe’s and CollinsMaxwell/Baxter’s wrestlers squared off in a showdown of Heart of Iowa Conference foes on Thursday. The Mustangs continued on the winning path, taking the dual in the Raiders’ home gym, 57-21. It had been a long layoff for the Mustangs, who hadn’t wrestled in more than two weeks, but PCM coach Cory Waddell was pleased to see his athletes didn’t show much, if any,
rust against the Raiders. “It was a good effort coming out of a long layoff. We haven’t wrestled since Dec. 21. I was concerned about rust, but the guys came out aggressive and wrestled well. We seem to be pretty healthy heading into the heart of our schedule. Nice to get our second conference dual win,” Waddell said. PCM 120-pounder Xavier Miller stayed true to his winning ways with a 2 minute, 40 second pin of Lane Howes. Another PCM standout this season, Luke Cummings, took
down Zach Huffaker in 52 seconds with a pin in the 152-pound bout. Mustang Jade Coleman got a 10-3 decision in the 160-pound matchup against Jordan Coughenour. Ron Marshall pinned Blake Coughenour in 54 seconds to take the 170-pound match. Lucas Rains pinned CMB’s Logan Cory in 1:10. Brandon Charls took the 220-pound match, pinned Archer McFadden in 1:30. Last for the Mustangs, Tristan Clark got the pin on Beau Iske at 126. CMB’s wins came from Dawson Dahlke, who
pinned Trent Malone in 53 seconds to take the heavyweight matchup. Evan Bianchi got a decision over James Maggard at 138 pounds. Bianchi’s coach Joe Bartello, was very pleased with the way he wrestled, and he understood what the team was up against in such a deep team as the Mustangs. “I felt CMB wrestled hard against a tough team,” he said, “Evan Bianchi wrestled a good match winning us team points WRESTLING See Page 2B

On Tuesday, the Eagle girls lost 54-49 to Pella then the boys dropped a 70-53 decision. “We got off to really slow starts for the first and third quarters,” said Kevin Van Maanen, Eagle girls’ head coach, of the game against Pella. The Eagle girls overcame the slow start in the beginning to lead 23-19 by halftime. Pella Christian and Pella were deadlocked in a 35-35 game after three quarters.

Brooke Mitrisin added four points. “We struggled in our transition defense,” Van Maanen said. “Our biggest problem was giving up too many offensive rebounds. We did a lot of good things. Offensively, we played a lot better. Lauren had a great game for us. Tessa had a great floor game. Hannah had her best game of the year offensively and defensively. We had a lot of girls that stepped up giving us lots of positives to take away from the game.” Jessica Holterhaus paced Pella with 20 points. Mackenzie Gustafson added 14 points.

The action was halted for a brief time when Peters was shaken up, but he returned to the center of the mat. DeJong turned Peters for a pin with 18 seconds left in the second period, bumping up Oskaloosa’s lead to 3427. Alex Bentley fought three periods against Oskaloosa’s Nick Beebe before bowing to a 5-1 decision at 132. Tish’s quick win at 132 ended the conference dual. “Our team philosophy is ‘take shots and be aggressive.’ We weren’t aggressive and we didn’t take shots tonight,” Swedenhjelm said. “The beautiful thing about it — it’s all fixable. It’s not for the lack of talent or for hard work because the guys do work hard in the (practice) room. We

If you had to create your own personal coat of arms, what is the symbol that would most meaningfully represent you? The trine of the sun in Capricorn and the Taurus moon will illuminate such personal symbols. Stay observant, and these representations of our consciousness will show up in surprising places. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 10). You’ll be the one to whip up the enthusiasm of your group. A beautiful relationship inspires you and brings you to new levels of excitement and action in the next 10 weeks. And it’s still good after that, as a project will have you working and building together. March, July and October are your biggest money months. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 12, 39, 17 and 5. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll have a string of well-timed interactions, and this is not only because the universe is on your side these days. It’s also because you are observant and you follow your intuition.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It won’t matter to you whether you have a little or a lot. What will matter is that what you have is your own. If you have the choice, you’d rather have very little and be able to call it completely yours.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Everyone wants to be understood, and yet most people barely understand themselves — so how can they understand anyone else? Your talent for clearing up misunderstandings will be in high demand.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Everyone needs novelty in their day, though few have the guts, talent and ideas to provide it. That’s where you come in. You don’t mind if they laugh — it means you did your job right.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s a time to get lean and mean in terms of a project or something to do with your lifestyle. This will lead to positive results. Simplicity and economy are your best defenses. Downsize before you are downsized.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be attending an event. If this experience were a book, you would skip some of it — namely the filler that feels bloated with too many details. You can afford to skip that part in real life, too.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Just because something is not hard doesn’t mean it’s easy. What’s worth doing today will take a few simple steps. The extreme repetition of those steps will be what makes for a successful outcome.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be dealing with people you don’t necessarily agree with or even like, but you still have to figure out how to best manage the interaction. One success recipe: honesty, levity and a smile.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Here’s the straight truth: You are compromising too often and too much. Instead of starting off with what you think the other person will go for, start off with what you want.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). One of the secrets of your success is that you use the words “our” and “we” often. Standing for your group, even if it’s only a group of two, will start a wonderful string of events. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Do what you want to do today. There will be people whose needs compete with yours and other reasons for subverting your interests, and all are manageable if you have the will. Get on your own side. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). Being around the same person or people for too many hours and days in a row could bring out a less than optimum side of you. Arrange to get away. You deserve this. COPYRIGHT 2013 CREATORS.COM
